HTC Thunderbolt - 2011
ViewSonic gTab - 2010
Huawei S7 - 2010
HTC Incredible - 2010
Augen Gentouch 7/8 - 2010
Samsung Omnia - 2008
HTC Touch (Vogue) - 2007
Nokia 770 - 2007
Motorola Q - 2004 (not a touch device, but a full PDA none-the-less)
HP Journada - 2002 (got it because the Casio was recalled)
Casio Cassiopeia - 2002
Palm IIIc - 2001
Apple Newton 2100 - 1999
Apple Newton 130 - 1997
Apple Newton 100 - 1995

(edit - forgot my Nokia 770!)

-Palm Zire (b&w).
Did not impress me at all. I found a pad of paper to be far superior.
-ASUS Mypal A620.
Much better, but still not great. Had some nice features like auto-adjust CPU speed to save battery, which at the time was a novel idea.
-Nokia 3300.
Not a true PDA but yet still got more use out of it because the core features were so damn good. Little things like the full qwerty keypad that was comfortable and fast. Good calendar and notepad. Wide range of support for music formats, and any of them could be used as ringtones (a feature that is still lack on many phones today). When I went to the Nokia 6230 I got a slimmer form factor but lost the convenience of a full keypad, which I always missed.
Nokia 3300 Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)
It may look stupid but trust me when I say it was incredibly good and changed my perception of cell phones. Up to that point all I had was the Moto C333 which is regarded as one of the worst phones ever made.

-Nokia E71.
Great but not perfect and by the time it came out the iPhone and most android devices were kicking its butt. Symbian is nice but didnt keep up with the rest of the world.
-BB 8330.
Bought it for my mom and played with it for a day before handing it over. Very nice overall. But I dont think I'd ever want a blackberry for myself, especially as the sole device.
First Android and I liked it a lot but found I didnt need to spend that kind of money for such limited features. Returned it after a week.
-LG Voyager.
Like the above Nokia it was more multimedia than Smart, but it was a darn good phone simply for the nice display and excellent keyboard. Also had decent built in apps for notepad and calendar. In fact its my favorite keyboard of all. Still have it. Recently pulled it out of the box and charged battery. Forgot how nice a phone it had been. The media player was very clunky but everything else was great. Screen still looks good compared to whats out there now even if its small. Also the resistive touch screen worked much better than some recent devices I've used.
- Palm Pre.
Very pretty but did not impress me at all. Keyboard was a pain. Returned after three days but Sprint screwed me. Charged cancellation fee and 3 months service. Will never trust them again.
- The Droid.
Best darn phone I have ever used. Much better than the G1 in both hardware and software. In fact its display is still used as the benchmark against which all other Android devices are judged. Verizon iPhone 4: Thoroughly Reviewed - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News
Scroll down to Brightness and Contrast. On overall scores only the Droid 2 is better.
The capacitive touch is awesome, made all the more poignant by some recent resistive screens I've used. The keyboard isnt as good as the Voyager but many new Droids dont have any hardware keyboard. Also its the only Android phone Verizon sold that wasnt loaded with their crap, or Motorolas crap. And an unlocked bootloader. What else? The GPS navigation is great. 3g speeds are good but I always prefer wifi when I have it. It got updates right away, in fact I just got 2.22 this morning. Looks like it will never have 2.3 but no big deal. 2.2 was the major improvement, especially with the UI. Oh, and gorilla glass is friggen awesome! I've had this puppy in my pocket along with a fat knife, multi-tool, keys, change and it never gets scratched. Also easy to rub off smears and smudges. Just wipe it on my jeans and it looks great.
When my contract expires I am keeping this puppy as a PDA. Wifi can do everything. And I rarely make calls or send SMS or MMS. I can use a tracfone for that.

Oh, and for reference I grew up in Brooklyn Park.

iPod touch 2nd gen- I got this as my first PDA and LOVED it.

Blackberry world edition- Very pretty but missing a camera (what were you thinking rim??)

iPod touch 4th gen- I use this everyday because it is great but using it less and less because of...

Flytouch II/SuperPAD- My hands down favorite device that I have owned. It does everything but can be a little bit slow sometimes so I am contemplating a viewpoint 10

uplade3, the the World Edition was made for business men and women that were not allowed cameras in the workplace, but needed something with an enterprise server for their email, that's why that the WE came without a camera, but was able to be used overseas.
